Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: A new virus, unlike any other is infecting schools. It is spread through social media. It is a pandemic that is quickly spreading around the world. Its origins are not known, but individuals with a history of negative and violent home lives are more susceptible to infection. It is highly contagious and no one is immune. Statistics show that 42% of all kids have been bullied online and almost one in four have had it happen more than once. Cyber bullying is a major cause of depression and suicide among teenagers. The Langley Schools Music Department used this artistic medium to illustrate how cyberbullying happens, who does it and what we can be doing about it!

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: For girls, friends are the center of their lives. Friends brighten girls' days in preschool, become inseparable in elementary school, and help girls in middle school develop their own, separate lives. As girls grow up, they often find best friends, break up, and reform friendships time and again. In this video, three best friends have fun climbing trees, doing flips on the trampoline, and make faces at the camera. This is a fun video about the art of friendship!

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Every year, an astounding number of women and girls are abused domestically and sexually. Because of their traumatic experiences, these survivors are at risk of shutting themselves out of the world and from their family and friends, unwilling to express themselves or tell others how they feel because something dear and precious was violated.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: When this story about Phil Hansen and his incredible works of art was posted on People of the Web, viewers were blown away. Some people even compared him to Leonardo da Vinci.
 

Arts & Art Therapy 


 

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: As both an art therapist and an artist, one of the things that drives me nuts is the general perception of artists as mad/poverty-stricken/pathetic etc.  I belive that such a misperception contributes to people's reluctance to use art/the arts as the life-enhancing, healing tools that they can indeed be. I deliberately seek out art that pleases me such as Michael Lang's work which is beautiful and is a fine example of the skill and dedication required to be an artist.

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


by Laurence Kingston

Artist at work, a masterpiece is born

Using colors from a crayon box

And only the most casual reference to the lines

The intensity amazes me...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Picasso said, "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." Laurence wrote this song for his son "back when he used to like to color." It is a fun song and may remind you of the days when your refrigerator was covered with art projects from school!

 

Arts & Art Therapy


by Laurence Kingston

I can see you sitting in your favorite chair
got your sweatpants on and your feet in the air
a soda from yesterday sits by your side
the ring on the table is starting to dry...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Art has often been used to raise our awareness of social issues. Laurence wrote this song for a movie titled "Take a Pill". (They didn't use it because it was too mellow.) The movie was written as a commentary on today's pill popping commercials and the "wonder pills" that can cure whatever ails us.

ARTS & ART THERAPY
The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
